Deedee's Digis December Blog Hop

Happy December, my friends! 
It's a brand new month, and what better way to celebrate than with a blog hop?!? This hop is a little different than the usual. This month Deedee's Digis is proudly sponsoring the quarterly blog hop at the House of Cards challenge blog, where all of their hop creations are centered around this lovely inspiration photo. 
If you participate in their hop, you could win one of several prizes from a variety of sponsors. But we thought, why not make it a true PARTY and offer you a TANDEM HOP?!?
It's a lovely inspiration photo, isn't it?
I was inspired to create a kraft gift box with pink bow, and a tag to go with it.
The tag is made using a wonderful Christmas set from Deedee's Digis.
It's called "Beary Merry Christmas" and can be found HERE.
I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir markers and layered it on some cardstock cut in a tag shape.
I punched a hole and added the pretty ribbons.
Finally, I added some stickles to give it a touch of sparkle!
Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: Deedee's Digis - Beary Merry Christmas,
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Cricut Cartridges: Box It Up, Pretty Packages;
Stickles: Gold, Cotton Candy;
Ribbon: Offray.

So here's how OUR hop works:
  • Based on the same inspiration photo, some of Deedee's designers have created projects to inspire you.
  • You have until 11:55 PM Pacific Time this Saturday, December 5, to visit the participating designers' blogs and leave them some love.
  • At the end of our hop, each participating designer will choose a winner from the comments left on their hop post, and each winner will receive one digi set of their choice from our shop.
  • All winners will be announced at Deedee's Digis Monday, December 7th.
Sound like fun? But wait -- there's more!!! When you've completed the hop, be sure to hop back to Deedee's Digis and leave a comment to say so. Those who do will be entered to win the grand prize of a $15 gift code to the shop.
Last but not least, no Deedee's Digis blog hop would be complete without a FREEBIE to kick it off. The new "Gift of Love" digi set is available to download for FREE in the "Try Before You Buy" area of our shop through December 6.
Wow -- that's a lot of FUN! Now let's get going! Here are the designers to visit. 
Happy hopping! :-)

What a darling little tag! I love how you colored the tree and added the sparkly star on top! The colors and layering are a perfect compliment to the gift-wrapped box it's leaning against!

Beautiful Nancy ! Love how you have coloured the gorgeous image , it's almost like 3D ! I could just pick that bear up and give it a hug! It's great to be able to make a box with your Cricut !

I used to have this digi but computer crashes and such cause me to lose it. Your coloring and card are so adorable. Thanks for sharing.

Such a heart-warming little set, Nancy! I love how you colored the gift box in the image to match the box you made. And speaking of the box, how clever is that! Such a perfect paper bow, too. Love these!
